160101-0053-BR - Kamishibai Story Teller


Outside Showa 1960s IJsbrand Rogge
Japanese children react to a kamishibai performance, 1960 (Showa 35).

The kamishibai storytelling method originated in Japanese Buddhist temples in the 12th century and enjoyed a revival from the 1920s through the 1950s because it gave unemployed men the opportunity to earn a small income. Kamishibai storytellers travelled on a bicycle equipped with a small stage and earned their money from selling candy.
